French-Toasted Ham & Cheese

French_Toasted Ham & Cheese
1 loaf Italian bread, about 15" long
1 8-oz. pkg. ham slices
1 8-oz. pkg. mozzarella cheese slices
1/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1/4 cup butter or margarine
syrup (optional)

Cut 16 slice from the Italian bread. Fold ham and cheese slices to fit on 8 bread slices. Top with remaining bread slices to make 8 sandwiches. In pie plate with fork, beat milk and eggs together. Dip sandwiches in to egg mixture, one at a time, until well coated on both side.s Melt butter or margarine in skillet. Cook sandwiches until golden brown on both sides. Serve with syrup for dipping.

Notes: We liked this recipe. We had planned on using some leftover sandwich meat for the recipe, but it had spoiled so our sandwiches were just cheese. Dipping the sandwich in syrup overpowered the flavor of the cheese. Source: Freezer meals recipe binder that we were given as a wedding gift.
